Free Concert Feat. Sarah MaLachlan, The Tenors, and Matt Dusk.

Grammy award winning singer Sarah McLachlan will be joined by Juno award winners, The Tenors to headline a free concert that also includes singer Matt Dusk, when the Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train makes its annual stop at Anderson Station in Calgary on Saturday December 7, 2013.

This Holiday Train signature event, in support of the Calgary Food Bank, will be hosted by Peter Mansbridge and kicks-off with the opening of the North Pole Station at 4:00 p.m. followed by the concert, which begins at 5:00 p.m.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a donation or non-perishable food item to the free event.

The North Pole Station, a magical village, will feature family-oriented interactive activities, including ice carving, hot chocolate and a chance for the kids to visit Santa before making their way to the concert stage.

While the event is free, those attending are asked to make a donation or bring non-perishable food items. Everything collected at each show stays in the community for local distribution.

This extra-special Holiday Train event is one of only three stops across North America where Canadian Pacific has added additional star-power to help shine a spotlight on the railways mission of raising food, money and awareness in the fight against hunger. Since 1999, the Holiday Train has raised about $7.4 million and about 3 million pounds of food for North American food banks.

We encourage everyone to use Calgary Transit as parking spots on site will be limited.

    It was pleasure to meet you all. Sorry to those whom I didn't get enough time to talk to. Some of us surrendered against the wrath of the cold and decided to go to South Centre.
    Hopefully, I would meet you all in next meetup I can attend.
    However, the mystery to me is, did Steen come?? :o

      So, by the time Sarah's done, you guys probably won't be there anymore, and it's a long walk from Anderson station to Southcentre in this cold, so I better pass after all.
